Joe Donatone with Worship Associate Rev. Steven Protzman
Seminarian Joe Donatone will share
his reflections on the Pulse tragedy while examining how our Unitarian
Universalist values can guide us through even the darkest of moments. Remaining
liberal and religious in times of crisis can be challenging. Joe offers ways in
which our values can sustain us, guide us, and inspire us to action.
Summer services are offered on Sunday mornings at 10 AM with nursery care available during the service.
Led by Rev. Steven Protzman with Worship Associate Lisa Thiel
theologian Rufus Jones writes, “Beauty has no function, no utility… It is a
gift of sheer grace, a gratuitous largesse.
Our joy in it shows that we are in some sense kindred to the giver and
revealer of it.” Surrounded by the
natural beauty of Plum Creek Park, we will gather as a community of all ages to
celebrate beauty. Our service will
include the child dedication of Declan and then a picnic.
One service at 10 am in Plum Creek Park, Shelter #1 Please bring a dish to share and your own place settings and beverage. The Church will provide water.
Led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Camille Fauser, Worship Associate
For some of us, this season is difficult. It may be a painful reminder of loved ones who are no longer present to celebrate the holidays, there may be other losses or struggles we are facing, or the long dark nights may be a challenge. “Blue Christmas” will be a meditative service that will provide a space for grief and loss, for reflection and remembering, and for honoring the many different feelings we have this time of year.
Led by Katie Grigg and Eric van Baars, Worship Associate
It’s the darkest time of year, and there seems to be so much despair, fear and darkness in the world. Let’s find out how to let in the light! Light holds great cultural and sacred significance in many of the world’s major religions,especially in the holiday season. We’ll pay homage to traditions and welcome new ways to usher light into the dark corners of our mind, and our world.
Sunday services are offered at 9:45 and 11:30 AM with nursery care available during both services.
The SCOTUS hearings, the divisiveness so evident in our politics and in our country right now, and the treatment of survivors of sexual violence have made the last few weeks difficult for all of us and especially painful for survivors of sexual violence. We want to offer an opportunity for a safe space to express your thoughts and feelings, to participate in a ritual of healing, and to hear words of hope to sustain us in the times to come. Everyone is welcome to attend. Childcare will be provided — no RSVP needed.
